TIM, A2A sign Milan fibre-optic cable deal

Friday 9 September 2016 | 09:13 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) and Italian energy company A2A have signed a memorandum of understanding that will allow the operator to lay fibre-optic cables in the utility's pipes in Milan, reports Il Sole 24 Ore. The agreement may affect parts of the city where Telecom Italia has a deal in place to use the infrastructure of Milan-based broadband provider, said the report. Metroweb was recently acquired by the Enel Open Fiber (EOF) venture of utility giant Enel, allowing the group to accelerate its plan to roll out a high-speed broadband network all over Italy in competition with Telecom Italia.
